Rosaerlinda Cisneros is about to embark on her senior year at Texas A&M University, as she prepares to graduate in May 2014 with a degree in Environmental Geosciences and minor in Atmospheric Sciences. Rosa has received her iconic Aggie ring, a true symbol of Rosa's great academic achievements throughout the years from the university she has dreamed of attending since she was a little girl. But it wasn't always an easy road for Rosaerlinda; and her story could have been a great deal different -- if it hadn't been for TRM.
